Confuse about squid.conf files
« on: March 27, 2005, 05:01:02 AM »
Hello alll

i installed simple proxy on my linux9 and installed  squid transperent src.rpm. but i want to know if we start simple proxy then its configuration file is in /etc/squid/squid.conf and if we start transperent proxy /usr/local/squid/etc/squid.conf.

i confuse about these files are diffrent or same. if i want to remove transperent proxy then what is the procedure.

please tell me in details.

there is nothing like transparent proxy just by installing a package having trasparent in its name.

about different location of squid.conf files..

If you install squid from rpm package then mostly (all the time) configuration files goes to /etc/squid/ while if you install from tarball then it goes usually to /usr/local/squid/etc/ !

So now you have to either install squid rpm or delete squid package file so that you can get sure which squid you are running !

I think you are running rpm based !

you just remove squid RPM..
The do as I have suggested.. I am sure that will work..

You have to just keep those in squid.conf and nothing else to do anywhere ..

Hi dear
I think u have missed a entry in /etc/hosts
THIS IS THE PROBLEM
open /etc/hosts filr
make entry like this

192.168.2.190                                          mycomputer

{ where 192.168.2.190 is ur ipaddress & mycomputer is ur computername)
& if u dontknow ur computername....
give this command on the terminal
#hostname


& make the required entry in /etc/hosts file...
The above entry is must...........


Afetr that ur SQUID will work

rpm -e <rpm full name> !

Hi dear

By default the configuration file for squid is
/etc/squid/squid.conf......
so u have to configure  /etc/squid/squid.conf......   not the file which is in /usr/local/etc/squid

So U have to make changes only in
/etc/squid/squid.conf

you are getting way confused !

You have installed two squids .. one usig rpm and other using tar.gz ie source.

Now you are using rpm's squid installation as I can know it from your comments..

What you simply do is uninstall (delete) files of usr/local/squid

and edit only /etc/squid/ files !

about non working of rpm .. if it is compiled with linux-netfilter directive then it should work .
(in rpm packages comilation is done by other people who create the package)

Hope you get it !
